BuzzFlash Mailbag for April 20, 2007

BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

Subject: John McCain & "Bomb, Bomb ... Iran"

I expected the electronic media to replay John McCain's meltdown of "bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran" the same number of times they played Howard Dean's cowboy yell in Iowa 2004. (THAT was shown hundreds if not thousands of times.) After all, they were BOTH presidential candidates ON the campaign trail. Yet I saw no replay on last night's news.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Louis Posada Carriles is wanted in both Cuba and Venezuela for terrorist activities, including the 1976 bombing of a civilian airliner that killed 73 people and a series of deadly Havana tourist hotel bombings in 1997. He was put on a list banning him from getting a visa to enter America, but he managed to come in illegally. Busted on immigration charges in 2005, a federal court has just freed Posada on bond pending his trial (despite the fact that he escaped from prison in 1985).

We can and we must understand the mind of Cho Seung-Hui. This is our best protection against further atrocities such as the one Cho committed at Virginia Tech on April 16. Most likely Cho reached his state of derangement through a prolonged deterioration we all can understand.

At Senate Hearing, Attorney General Invoked Faulty Memory Over 50 Times

Gonzales' under oath appearance
Wasn't even so-so;
One usually hears that many denials
From a Mafioso.

Dave Lindorff: Betraying Thomas Jefferson

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Dave Lindorff

The enemies of the Constitution are growing in number and are found now, not just in the White House and the Congress, but also in state capitals, from Washington to Vermont.

"I should have been more precise."
(My bad: I took my own advice.)

"I firmly believe that nothing improper occurred."
(I'm completely lying with each carefully chosen word.)

"This is a process that was ongoing."
(Yikes! Did my nose just start growing?)

"I've already said that I misspoke."
(Mr. Mirror, meet Mr. Smoke.)
